In a surprising announcement today, Karan Johar not only announced the title of his next, Takht, but also announced, what might be the biggest casting coup in Bollywood till now. The cast for the movie includes the handsome Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Dhadak star Janhvi Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar and Anil Kapoor. The movie will be directed by Karan himself and will release in 2020. With Takht, Karan is returning to direction after Ae Dil Hai Mushkil which starred Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma

The historical magnum opus is based on the Mughal dynasty and is primarily a story of two brothers. The younger one will essay a negative character. Vicky Kaushal plays Ranveer Singh’s brother, Aurangzeb, in the film while Kareena Kapoor Khan will essay the role of Ranveer Singh’s character’s sister, Jahanara Begum’s role. Alia Bhatt will play Ranveer's love interest in Takht. Ranveer Singh will be seen in the role of Dara Shukoh.


Takht also brings together the much-awaited pair of Ranveer and Kareena for the very first time on the big screen. Ranveer and Kareena are one of the most loved celebs and what better than having the two stellar actors together in a film? Ever since the photos of Ranveer escorting Kareena post a housewarming bash had gone viral, the fans of the duo have been waiting to see them together and Karan has just managed this casting coup which possibly everyone was trying. Also not many might remember but Kareena Kapoor Khan was the first choice for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Ram Leela which later on went on to become a turning point for Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone


Ranveer has already been a part of two magnum opus by Sanjay Leela Bhansali namely Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat while Kareena was a part of Asoka opposite Shah Rukh Khan. This leaves us wondering if are period films a true calling for Ranveer Singh? Hmm. 

Takht will be Ranveer and Alia's second film together after Gully Boy. Also, Janhvi who made a stunning debut with Dhadak this year has chosen her second film to be a historical magnum opus. 

Apart from the official announcement, Karan also mentioned who the writers of the film are on Twitter and wrote, "The Screenplay is by SUMIT ROY! Dialogues by HUSSAIN HAIDRY,SUMIT ROY! And thanks to @NotSoSnob for bringing these talents to us at @DharmaMovies ! An exciting journey ahead....WRITERS are the heartbeat and soul of a film! These gentlemen lead all the way...." The movie is a historical magnum opus and is believed to be Karan's most ambitious project. No more details on the same have been disclosed as yet. 
Ranveer shared his excitement by this tweet, "Proud, excited & honoured to be a part of KARAN JOHAR’S MULTI-STARRER HISTORICAL MAGNUM OPUS." On the other hand, Alia wrote, "Back where I begun.. to my roots! So so so so excited to be a part of this historical magnum opus! TAKHT! Directed by the one and ONLY!"

Vicky too posted about Takht, "Honoured to be a part of @karanjohar ‘s multi-starrer historical magnum opus #TAKHT !!! @apoorvamehta18 @DharmaMovies" While Anil Kapoor expressed his excitement saying, "Thrilled to be a part of @karanjohar 's historical magnum opus with a stellar cast! Watch out for more!"


Takht or Palank? LOL.

as Rraveerian am happy to see them together

This will be the role of a lifetime for Kareena, I really hope she doesn’t screw this up or goes into her comfort zone. She will look ethereal as a Mughal princess.

Kareena is the talent mountain in this movie

Ab yeh kya Tamasha hai? Karan directing period film? Is this joke?

Now Ranveer will keep getting paired with one nepo kids after the other....This is his second film with Alia..Already doing a film with Sara... Next will be Janhvi I suppose.........

Please cast Taimur as a child actor in this movie. He can certainly look the part very well.


Thank God multi starrers are coming back! Tired of the 1 hero and new heroine formula in vogue

you act as if there is no two actors movies and here its only one hero with multiple actresses


seriously dont want alia!! wtf and that too ranveer's love interest. god she's the least interested to look at. i wish its ranveer and kareena and bhumi is ranveer's sister.

we want kareena & ranveer pair as lovebirds not bother and sister kjo. make their pair happen. SO excited.

Kjo's strength is family drama or love drama of current times. He can't simply CAN'T do any other genre. Copying SLB is a huge financial mistake.

...And for finally taking Kareena back to the times when she used to do author backed role .(At least I hope so ,with Alia around Karan u never know & there's Bhumi & young Jhanvi too) . Perhaps it was just fate stepping in for Ram Leela for all 3 actors - Kareena is content in her personal space ; Ranveer & Deepika kick started their careers & personal lives as a couple . Everyone's happy .

Obviously Kareena now needs Ranveer to save her career. She was a big time snob earlier and made fun of Ranveer openly. Even on Kjo s chat shows.

Isn't RS not the one having flops without SLB? KAreena has been ruling the BO, her last few are the reason she is on top of her game. So sit down and enjoy the tea I just served you.

He is trying to do SLB period film he cannot pull that off man

Why Alia why Janhvi? Karan fully proving his sugar nepo daddy statutes

Can't wait to see Kareena playing a role like this. Sick of seeing her as the modern Indian bubbly girl

Noooooo should be kareena opposite ranveer!

from k3g to takht. . .how the mighty have fallen

Jhanvi?? Like really..ab isko bhi movie pe movie milegi..uff..

Wow! Ranveer's career has come a full circle considering how Karan had roasted him in AIB roast making him look like a bloody nobody in front of Ranbir! And he takes him as his leading man now! How times change!

The merit has fallen so much that apparently we need to be excited about Ranveer and Kareena together, lol..

but they are playing siblings...

Everyone is concerned about Alia’s casting but what about Jahnvi?? Why her? Good to see the inclusion of Vicky and Bhoomi.

BTW Vicky is a nepo-kid... He is the son of famous stunt director Shyam Kaushal....

Why Alia. She is just terrible. With her cringeworthy voice. Hate her.

Alia & Jhanvi are of no use. They should not be in the cast at all.

No use to you, but the rest of India wants to watch them.

More respect to Kangana
First alia and now Jhanvi too!

What is soo great in this casting... it’s not bringing amitab, kamal, rajni, mohanlal.. it’s kareena and ranveer

Kareena is very talented and is going to shine in the movie, she’s going to bring back the gold days where she delivered great perfomances in Chameli, Dev, Omkara, and Jab we met!

The same kareena kapoor khan who thought ranveer was too small to be cast with on Ramleela. Karma!

No buddy, she walked out because SLB didn't want a married Leela and asked her to postpone her wedding. And She just delivered a 100 cr hit on her own so she doesn't need an actor who needs a particular actress and director to work at BO

rockstar ranveer!!!

I hate karan for choosing alia everytime.Enough if her please

Always alia .I just hate this girl and the advantages she is getting without even trying.Karan is for sure nepotism ka baap
